Pixil 3D Uses Their Replicator 2 For Custom Consumer Products

About a month ago I bragged about Pixil Agency, a group of creative forward thinkers down in sunny Florida who happen to use both The Replicator and the MakerBot Replicator 2 in work for their clients. Well, here I am again to sing their praises, because these guys just don’t quit.

As this Young Entrepreneur article explains, Pixil has launched a spin-off business, Pixil 3D focused exclusively on the creative 3D printing services they’ve gotten so good at. “Leave it to young entrepreneurs to make a business case for 3D printing,” the article says.

Business case, indeed, with a focus on the word case. As I was catching up on twitter, Pixil VP Nick Mohnacky’s blog jumped out at me showing off the custom cases the team has already made and started selling for the new iPad Mini. Yes, you read that right. Not only do they have this just-released gadget; they’ve already used their MakerBot Replicator 2 to get a production line going of custom cases. Nick writes,

Ok, so the iPad mini is all but a foreign device to most of America, as most people have seen it on Apple’s website or held one at best because it is so new.  However, Pixil 3D is on the grind again making consumer products as quickly as possible, and the iPad mini case is at the top of the list.  We have prototyped 3 different ones in the past couple days printing 4-5 different renditions of each.  Our Makerbot Replicator 2 is dialed in and we’re a few hours away from confidently selling our latest design for the iPad Mini.  Who wants one?  Email [email protected]

That’s just bananas! Anyone still wondering if owning a MakerBot Desktop 3D Printer makes sense for your small business?

    If the community wasn’t printing iPhone 5 cases and sharing them on Thingiverse before Apple even *announced* the iPhone 5, then I would think this was really cool.

      Oh that is pretty awesome, you’re right. I didn’t realize that. How did people know the new dimensions? Was that information leaked?
